Beaujolais in Los Angeles

Posted by echox, Jul 14, 2010.

Any angelinos out there know of a store that offers more than a SINGLE bottle of beaujolais-villages on their shelves?  I've been able to come across a Burgaud Regnie at Red Carpet in Glendale, but I really want to get out there and try some of the great cru's like Moulin-a-Vent and Morgon.

 

thanks!

are you looking for an actual wine shop down there in southern cali....or are you willing to try buying online from the bay area?

No luck at the Hollywood K&L or Silverlake Wine? Those would be my first stops ... if they don't have any, they'll be the folks who can tell you who in town does, I bet.

K&L Wines is a good recommendation with a huge selection. They're a small chain that started in the Bay Area, but their LA shop is on Vine near Sunset. Other good shops I've used include Wally's and 20-20. Wine Expo is a great shop if you're looking for Italians (even the most obscure), champagne, etc. but might not be useful for Beaujolais. Finally, if you want to search for shops by location, here's a useful map.

I'd be willing to order online, but part of the fun of beaujolais for me is the bang for your buck, and that starts to get killed off when you have to be shipping.  So knowing of an actual wine shop that's better stocked in that area would be more fun.

Hey all - thanks so much!  I grew up in LA but spent the last 5 years (undergrad & grad) on the east coast, so I'm out of touch of where the bigger, better stocked wine places are around here.  Thanks!

Don't knock online ordering. If you can order enough from a place like klwines to qualify for a case discount, and since you're in-state, shipping shouldn't be much of a factor at all, especially since their prices are lower than many retail shops. That being said, it's always good to talk to knowledgeable floor staff in a good wine shop, and you'll end up encountering other interesting wines you might not in an online search. Something about seeing the labels, holding the bottles, etc. in the real world that the digital world can't match, even if a few online searches can bring lots of information to hand about specific wines that you won't always get at a retail outlet....

Check out Hi-time in Costa Mesa. They have a solid Beaujolias selection.
